divert waste collection truck

A dry mixed recycling (DMR) bin is a convenient way for Wakefield businesses to store many types of rubbish together before collection and disposal. It’s cost-effective for offices, shops, hotels, and other businesses that only produce small amounts of certain recyclable waste – rather than half filling bigger bins.

Dry mixed recycling is similar to what you’d throw away in your brown recycling bin at home in Wakefield. We provide free DMR bins anywhere in Wakefield and the surrounding region to make recycling your mixed waste quick, easy, and affordable.

How commercial dry mixed recycling works in Wakefield

Start with a free quote tailored to the size and number of DMR bins you need, where you want them collected from in Wakefield, and how often. We’ll book delivery and collection of DMR bins if you’re happy with the price and bring the bins to your premises on the agreed date.

Put clean and dry paper, cardboard, plastics, and metals in each bin and ensure you don’t exceed any weight limits. Then move each DMR bin to the collection point. A licensed waste carrier in one of our purple trucks will come and remove the bins and take them to a nearby waste transfer station in Wakefield.

The mixed waste will be assessed and separated into its materials. These are then recycled in their streams to form new materials and products. For example, plastics are usually melted down to create pellets and new plastic products, while cardboard is shredded, watered, filtered, rolled, and dried to make new sheets of cardboard.
